This turtle is happily swimming amongst the fishes. I like the appearance of a sparkle of light off of its mouth.

This a mass collection of ladybugs. I think this is shortly after they have hatched and passed the larvae stage.

According to Wikipedia, Lake Louise is in a hamlet in Alberta, which in turn was named after the Princess Louise Caroline Alberta (1848–1939), the fourth daughter of Queen Victoria, and the wife of John Campbell, the 9th Duke of Argyll, who was the Governor General of Canada from 1878 to 1883.

The Essential Water

Water

Book: “The Hidden Secrets of Water: Discovering the powers of the magical molecule of life,” by Paolo Consigli, MD

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

I feel as if I am reading the author’s Ph.D dissertation. It is extensive and long on such a subject as water. It covers nearly every possible angle and objective. It is interesting to read such an extensive account of water. There are many things one does not think of.

The book covers chaos theory and string theory. It covers quantum theory to ancient Chinese medicine to Ayurvedic philosophies and systems. It covers the fact that the Earth as well as the body is 70% water. It covers fractals and other patterns. It covers how water is related to the Aquatic Ape – possibly a predecessor to human beings in the past. It covers consciousness and how it is found in all of the body and not just the brain of the person even though 80% of the brain is made of water.

Here is an interesting quote from Felix Franks: “Without water, it is all chemistry. Add water and you get biology.” There is much more information regarding water and DNA and other biological functions available in this book.

It continues to discuss Masaru Emoto and his photography of water at minus 20 degrees celsius. Depending upon the source of the water whether clean or polluted determines if beautiful crystals appear. As well, even simply writing a positive word on a paper beside the water or playing nice orchestral music determines a beautiful crystal as opposed to violent, negative words and jarring music. It is as if the water has a conscious soul. As we are 70% water ourselves, Emoto is convinced our bodies go through the same reaction to positive and negative energy and so the mind-body connection is made or psychophysical health is made.

Today’s physicists see the world as composed of “minuscule vibratory entities that resemble strings which augment the complexity of information, and of probable events that mutate and evolve uninterruptedly.”

Further “Intelligence needs experience in order to become wisdom. And wisdom needs the word in order to be transmitted.”

Lao Tze teaches: “It is a simple prescription for those who feel lost, without any purpose in life, drowned by existential doubt: establish a relationship with water.” It is soft yet can go through something hard like rock. It is fluid. It is all encompassing. It is organic and yet inorganic. It is unitary in nature. It is one.

Water is incredible. Water is used to heal the body both internally and externally. The Appendix covers this topic at length. Thassolotherapy is the use of sea water for healing. It is a good book and well thought out. It is, like I said before, extensive. I enjoyed it but am glad I have completed this nearly 400 page book.

Book Review: The Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Big Book of Angel Tarot

Book: “The Big Book of Angel Tarot: The Essential Guide to Symbols, Spreads and Accurate Readings” by Doreen Virtue and Radleigh Valentine

Book Review by Mary Mikawoz

This book is compendium of information that goes along with the Angel Tarot Card Deck. The beginning of the book, reviews the history of tarot and how this deck compares to the traditional Rider-Waite deck. These cards are positive in nature while still dealing with events in a person’s life that may be perceived as negative or difficult to deal with. For this reason, the cards do not have a reverse meaning. If the cards are upside down, you simply put them the right direction and read the reading based on what has been written symbolically, according to the picture itself and based on both angel numbers and astrology.

The Major Arcana is now the Dreamer’s Journey. You follow him/her as they progress through life until you reach the World along with Archangel Michael. Each Major Arcana card has an Archangel attached to it which gives you further information as to how the card works in the spread or reading.

The Minor Arcana has pip cards which are the numbered cards and the court cards which include the Page, the Knight, The Queen and the King. The Ace starts off each suit. The suits have been changed to Fire, Water, Air and Earth.

The Fire has dragons and wands in it, Water has cups in it plus merpeople, Air has unicorns in it (swords in previous tarot decks) and Earth has fairies and gold coins in it.

I studied this book by having physically organized my cards according to the Major Arcana and Minor Arcana in the order they are presented in the book. Then it took time, however, I studied the card, then read the reading, reflected on the card some more and paused to think about it all. Then, I proceeded to the next card. In time, the whole deck and book were finished.

My head is now full of imagery, stories and symbolism. It is an appropriate book to have as a reference guide to go along with the Angel Tarot Cards. The little guide book that comes with the deck are good for basic information and then this big book gives you far more detail. This deck obviously took into consideration a lot of factors.

I was not financially compensated for this post. I received the book from Hay House for review purposes. The opinions are completely my own based on my experience.

Baby Merganser

I had a hard time capturing this photo and some others similar to it because ducks are mobile, constantly moving by swimming, ducking into the water and/or flying.  This is a baby merganser just developing its changing colours and feathers.  This is one of many species of birds that live near Lake Winnipeg which is the 10th largest freshwater lake in the world. The mergansers are fish-eating ducks.

Water Scene

This is a photo of a simple little water scene.  The yellow and black fish swim along the pink and purple coral.  Sorry, I am not even sure what the names are of all the parts of this water scene.  To me, it is just beautiful being nameless and not properly identified.   I even like the angle the fish swims at as it seems to curve its own body.  Any help identifying what it what?

This is a photo of the famous Sea Lions at Pier 39 in San Francisco.  I found the sea lions amusing to watch.  I always wonder what animals whom we are observing are thinking of us the observers.  They frolicked in the water, relaxed in the sun and occasionally dipped in the water for a quick swim.  Sometimes there was pompous gesturing.  Hmm.  This kind of all reminds me of people…
